It seems like the Ohnoya Hotel in Atami, Japan, has taken a strong interest in the virtual dating game 'Love Plus,' and is target men with virtual significant others. Putting a new spin on the virtual dating world, Love Plus is now allowing the player to already be in love and dating their virtual significant other.

As part of the game’s intrigue, Love Plus includes 13 authentic romantic destinations and this is what resorts such as the Ohnoya Hotel are using to their benefit. While over 200 Love Plus fans have stayed at the Ohnoya Hotel, over 2,000 fans have visited the resort town.

From local Love Plus themed souvenir shops to tiny black and white squares with 2-dimensional barcodes that allow you to use Augmented Reality software to bring objects of desire to life, to Ohnoya Hotel traditional rooms featuring two sets of futons where one includes a barcode panel for men to visualize their "girlfriends," there’s really no telling how far manga-loving fans will go in this world.
